Request Attendance by the Lord-Lieutenant

Celebrating achievements and events

One of the most rewarding parts of the role of Lord-Lieutenant of Shropshire is being able to meet people and take part in celebrations of achievements and events across the county.

Lord-Lieutenant attendance

These events always bring out the best in people and help to create an environment where supporting others and striving to excel are a common goal.

The Lord-Lieutenant attends as many events, ceremonies, commemorations, and civic services as possible, and is personally committed to supporting the work of local charity organisations and the voluntary sector, alongside major community events.

Please always try to give as much notice as possible when requesting attendance from the Lord-Lieutenant of Shropshire, as a huge number of invitations are submitted to the Shropshire Lieutenancy and sadly, not all can be attended.

  • The reason for the event/visit
  • If there are any duties you would like the Lord-Lieutenant to carry out
  • Background information about the organisation.


In the spirit of the office, it is important that certain protocols are upheld during a visit from the Lord-Lieutenant, so please do take the time to ensure these are respected.
